Ever since the Pokemon Go app has been launched, it has caught on like wildfire after being released in select countries like US, Australia, New Zealand etc on Google Play Store for Android users and App Store for iOS users. If you are not from the countries in which the App has been officially released, you might be restless to try it out like me and after some searching, I have found a way to install and use Pokemon Go in iPhone and Android devices even if the App has not been released in your country.
If you are in one of the countries in which Pokemon has been officially launched, you can search for the App in the respective stores and install it. You just need to check that it is developed by Niantic Labs.
What is Pokemon Go about?
The whole concept of Pokemon Go is that there are Pokemon found on our Planet and the users have to search for each Pokemon using the phone’s camera and GPS by walking around in real life. This is an immersive game which also makes the user walk around. Not just Pokemon but you need to find PokeStops which are seen around landmarks like museums, monuments, and other historical places.
After you have collected enough number of Pokemon you can find a Gym and compete to defeat its leader to claim the Gym as your own and defend it from other players who want to claim it. The App is available for Free in Play Store and App Store.
How to Install Pokemon Go for iOS (iPhone) and Android:
The App is not available in many countries at the moment, but you can install the app in countries in which it is not available using these methods.
For Android devices – you need to download and install the APK file from APKMirror and install it on your device. If you are from a country in which the App has been launched you can install the App from here – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nianticlabs.pokemongo
For iOS (iPhone): You can install the App on iPhone from App Store – https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pokemon-go/id1094591345?mt=8. There is no way to install Pokemon Go in iPhone if it is not available in your country yet.
It is a great app which has attracted a lot of users in the younger age group and it is being said that with the amount of walking required to get the Pokemon it is acting as a way to get out into the real world thanks to the immersive gameplay which is at offer.
